Winter Color Palettes for a Snowy Event

Winter Color Palettes for a Snowy Event, Couple hugging in snowy mountains
December 12, 2022

There’s something so romantic about wintertime—that feeling of the first snowfall, the lush greenery of wreaths and garlands, and we can’t forget the amazing smell of pine trees. The weather is chillier and having a loving partner to cuddle with and friends and family to gather with is nothing short of a winter dream. This is what makes winter weddings and events so appealing to clients. Winter encompasses a multitude of themes, palettes, and textures. Some are Christmas tree farm cozy, snowy mountain rugged, twinkling lights and crackling fires, cool elegance and shimmer, etc. Winter-inspired weddings and events don’t all look the same, but at the core, they all have that familiar essence of love near the fire and the warmth of a cup of hot chocolate. Adding just the right touches and mixing in the perfect color palette has never been easier with the Aisle Planner Design Studio and Color Palette Tool. Learn how you can make the most of the Design Studio and read on for some winter color palette dazzle!

Winter Feast at the Top of a Mountain 

When nature is your backdrop you don’t need much to establish a winter aesthetic. This Winter Feast at the Top of a Mountain captures the simplicity and awe-struck beauty that winter events often accomplish. This event took place at the edge of the forest in Rockcliffe Park. Imagine walking through the snow to a long wooden table by the woods, filled with friends and family, surrounded by pines and delicious food. This is an ideal palette for clients looking for an intimate, grand winter theme. Neutral earthy tones complement the natural setting. You can create your own color palettes in the Design Studio and get all of the inspiration you need from our styled shoots and real weddings. Our suite of tools automatically creates color palettes by pulling colors from the photos.

Whimsical Winter Wedding Inspiration

Subtle blushes, cranberry reds, and snow-covered florals give us the vibrant Whimsical Winter Wedding Inspiration we see in movies. These bright colors are a striking contrast against the glistening snowy white. Flocked pine trees, red roses, and pinks add a touch of light-hearted whimsy and fun to the traditional winter theme. To achieve this look you can design your project’s main color palette and then create mini color palettes for all aspects of the event. The tablescapes, attire, florals, aisle, etc. Color makes the world go round and creates the cohesion and ambiance of any event. With our Design Studio, we want to empower you to create color palettes that are fresh and unique for each of your projects!
